The basis for all we are and do at Christ Community Church in Frisco is the gospel of Jesus Christ. "But what is the gospel?" you might ask. The gospel is the good news about what Jesus Christ has done to reconcile sinners to God. The apostle Paul put it this way to the church in Rome, "The gospel is ... the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes." This gospel power is not simply about sharing a message, doing better or being nicer, but about a God-generated renovation of all of life. In so doing He gives us a new object of worship, new fuel for life and a new purpose for the future.
The gospel does this because it is outside of us. Out of this fountain of power flows mercy, forgiveness and love—in essence transformed lives. Moreover, this fountain is not generated from within us—from our efforts, experiences or knowledge. This fountain is found outside of us in the amazing and historical work of Jesus—his life, crucifixion and resurrection. His finished work alone restores, forgives and empowers sinners in a God-directed life.
Christ Community Church in Frisco exists to glorify God by Knowing Christ and Making Him Known through worship, community and mission—in community to community.
To carry out our vision we seek to glorify God by:
1. Our Worship
To know Christ is to be drawn with others into Christ-centered, biblically-based worship. We pursue this through weekly corporate worship where we listen as God speaks to us through His Word; where we respond to Him, and His acts on our behalf, through our prayers, confessions, songs and fellowship.
2. Our Gospel Community
Our leadership is committed to a biblical discipleship plan designed to produce healthy growing Christians and families who are developing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ not just for ourselves but for the spread of the gospel.
Connect Groups are the main vehicle by which we encourage our people to be on the pathway of growth. One of the main ways God works to transform us is through community, which consists of living life together, praying for one another, loving one another, bearing one another’s burdens, and stirring one another up toward love and good works. Through such regular gatherings the gospel is internalized and the body of Christ is strengthened.
We also encourage Sunday School for all ages, women’s studies, men’s studies, youth ministry and other one-to-one discipleship opportunities for growing in community. To learn more about these ministries please see “Ministries” and “Get Connected” here on our website.
3. Our Gospel Mission
Kevin DeYoung & Greg Gilbert define the mission of the church this way, “The Mission of the church is to go into the world and make disciples by declaring the gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Spirit and gathering these disciples into churches, that they might worship the Lord and obey his commandments now and in eternity to the glory of God the Father.” We believe this to be true. Therefore, to see the mission of Christ’s church executed we are to be:
A. Praying for those who do not yet know the Lord.
B. Proclaiming the gospel locally where we live, work and play both corporately and individually in order to move people toward Christ in discipleship.
C. Proclaiming the gospel to the nations through extended missions staff and short-term trips.
D. Proclaiming the gospel through Church Planting.
E. Extending gospel deeds of love - We encourage our members to prayerfully considering how to get involved where God is calling them and us on an individual and/or corporate basis. The Lord uses our members in various ministries and people’s lives in our community and surrounding areas.
